"So don't listen to that vine of grapes
They're nuttin' but liars hatin'
I bet they wouldn't mind tradin' places
With you by my side in my Mercedes..."
For example, you could be talking to a girl that you’re really feeling, things are progressing well, like you could really see a future with homegirl. Then as soon as things start feeling right & you’re considering taking that next step, shit starts to change…
You start hearing rumors from every angle about this girl, like damn, where did all this shit come from? She’s a hoe, she sleeping with all of the teams, she’s burning
& most of this is coming from your right hand man, so now you start questioning & believing everything you hear smh
See, your right hand probably got that information from the next man who got it from the next man who got it from some broad who got it from some dude, who the girl you feeling dissed in front of his boys.
That word has traveled through the ears and ignorant minds of 5 people before it reached yours, so how valid and accurate do you think that information is now?
Now you go back to homegirl, and you start treating her different because of the news you just heard. You start to stray away a little bit, missing phone calls, and being dry in text messages. It’s as if you’re trying to make her drop you, cause you don’t wanna drop her due to the fact that you still like her although you heard what you heard.
Why are you letting the thoughts and opinions of others influence your own decisions? Eventually you’re gonna have to grow up and live life the way you want to, not how the outsiders are telling you. Living life the way others want you to, will leave you unhappy and perhaps lonely for the rest of your life.
I understand that some girls are hoes and/or have hoe tendencies and carry themselves in promiscuous ways, but some girls just happen to be victims of false propaganda due to the immaturity and ignorance of others. In my opinion, I feel like you shouldn’t give a care about what people from the outside looking in are saying about homegirl. If the trust is there & you really like her, then go for it. You have to do what makes you happy & live life for self.
